The Other Half of Business
In business, most of us think we know everything – the truth is, we don't know the HALF of it.<br><br>
We set up our businesses on the half that we do know, and think we’ll learn the rest on the job. When you’re your own boss, on the job training comes at a price – usually in the form of receding hairlines, negative cash flow statements and brown bagging it for lunch!<br><br>
Our show is about uncovering the other half of business. From real estate development and brokerage to guerilla marketing campaigns, the Other Half of Business exposes your missing structure that will drive you to your “A-Ha!” moment. Tune in to The Other Half of Business, broadcast live every Saturday at 12 Noon Pacific Time on the VoiceAmerica Variety Channel.

How Does Medical Marijuana Impact State Rights, Sovereignty and Your Neighborhood
10 years ago California passed proposition 215, legalizing medical marijuana. Since then, many states have passed similar laws, however, Arizona has passed perhaps the most detailed and comprehensive legislation to date regarding medical marijuana. In addition, California tried to de-criminalize marijuana and that effort failed. Understanding what the federal government is doing, respecting state rights, and the controlled substance classification of marijuana is a challenging effort many of us face today. The DEA claims there is no medical value, while at the same time the federal government is providing in Iowa two patients the substances themselves.
We will be talking about certification centers, doctors, interim dispensaries, commercial leases and real estate, federal laws, the 10th amendment and state sovereignty.
Strategic Alignment – Why It’s Significant and How to Get There

Is My Networking Working?
Ever feel like you’re not getting any return on your time and money on the networking events you attend? How do you even decide which events to attend let alone which groups to join? It used to be that actual business owners and key corporate decision makers attended community and industry events and belonged to well-recognized business organizations at which real business transactions would take place. With the introduction of social media groups, offered by cyber giants Facebook and LinkedIn, networking as we knew it has evolved to another level that most of us have not fully embraced. Learning to navigate through traditional networking events like golf tournaments, happy hours and monthly luncheons, and coupling that with participation in online networking group memberships and discussions can be daunting. Zoning In will provide the GPS tools you need to get on the right path toward turning networking into real bottom line revenue for your business!
